I am back of track now .We are more committed to eating from our plot milking the cow ,killing our own meat, growing vegies etc.Do you have a cow ? or do you just do vegies Cheers Jellifus
We keep a couple of steers for meat, chickens for eggs and meat. Hope to get some sheep and piggies later ‘when we get the fences fixed up for them’. Actually I think that’s just an excuse, I’m sure DH thinks I’m a bit crazy sometimes with all the ideas I come up with!
I’d love to have a milking cow too – but I know who would be milking it 365 days a year :huh:
The invitation still stands for anyone who’d like to visit.November 29, 2010 at 1:13 pm #393326

Spinach, onions, spring onions, peas, broad beans, basil, lettuce, silverbeet are on the regulars list at the moment, along with many other herbs of course.
Major harvests of orris root and chamomile flowers in progress, more dried herb crops to go!December 11, 2010 at 6:49 am #393331
I am talking about 10 wheelbarrow loads of weeds and grass and we haven’t finished yet either:blush: We didn’t do our normal planting for this time of year and we let the garden go a bit because we were due to go back to Canada in October to see my family again but then a friend got very ill and we cancelled our trip to be with her. Our minds have been far from the garden and we finally woke up out of our haze and realised we needed to get on with it and get planting again….we just had to find the garden again first:pinch:
We think one more day and we will have completely clear beds again in both the front and back yards and then we are off and running again.December 11, 2010 at 10:11 am #393332

Today I managed to get enough snow peas to freeze and to eat, the first zucchini, with about six thousand more to follow. Some chives, eggs, silver beet and a beetroot. I tried a mixture of these in the shake and bake quiche recipe. No cheese in this recipe which is great for anyone with high cholesterol problems. I also have enough weeds to keep me going for a long long time. I have to admit I am starting to wonder if I still live in Victoria, very strange 70s weather. The humidity is turning the vegie garden into a jungle.
